From expandable to solar powered to three-bedroom homes, it's clear to you that no two small houses are alike. Unless they are all one-story – right?
thought the same thing until I discovered this two-story wooden structure by Saracen Outdoors. Yes, you read that correctly: two-storey as in two floors, as in a lower and an upper floor, as in … you understand.
Please meet the "Timber House", a wooden structure that includes a living room, a bathroom, a kitchen and two bedrooms – all for $ 75,000 and available at the touch of a button.
Despite its name, this finished creation is far from a log house. In fact, there are only two shipping containers stacked on top of each other. Here's how it works: Once the two 40-foot shipping containers have been delivered to the job site, take them from there. You need to install the stairs that connect the two containers and get your hands dirty when you connect basic items like electricity and water. NBD – at least according to an Amazon customer who wrote, "I think the most rewarding part was putting it together! […] Do not worry, it was not particularly complicated because I've been a carpenter for 59 years. / Structural Engineer."
Although not everyone has a constructive and constructive background, it does not mean that all hope is lost.
For fans of modern design, this not-too-small, tiny house is just what you need. Instead of stacking the containers directly on top of each other to form a large box, the separation allows for a deck on the second floor and a covered outdoor area on the first floor. Also, each floor of the tiny house is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows, so you can rely essentially on natural light.
Unlike other tiny homes available on Amazon, this two story situation can not really serve as a sanctuary for you and / or guests. But if you're not ready to live full time, this modular Mini-Casa can become a murderous second home or Airbnb. First, however, you have to figure out how to build this bad boy.
